White smoke? Do you mean steam? Does it dissipate or linger?
If its steam, it is either condensation boiling off ( hope this is true)
or water entering the cylinder via either the turbo bearing or the head
gasket - other places the high pressure typically keeps it OUT under
Incidentally, ELF excellium full-tech NF 5W40 is excellent oil.
